A four-year-old boy was injured at the Anděl metro station in Prague on Tuesday when his foot got stuck in an escalator. The child will require surgery after sustaining a deep cut and bruising, though a spokesperson for the hospital where he was treated said there would be no permanent damage. The Prague police said it was not clear what had caused the accident. A boy was injured when his foot got stuck in the escalator at the city’s Můstek metro station in August.
